Manufacturing TechnologyProfessional UpgradeCertificateAssociate of Applied Science DegreeCourse work in manufacturing technology prepares students for careers in high-tech manufacturing by producing products to exacting industrial standards utilizing current manual and computer-aided machine tool technology. Many classes are taught in a flexible, open-lab format and students may enter the program any term.Individualized daytime and evening instruction is provided in the operation of machine tools such as: lathes, mills, surface and cylindrical grinders and common machine shop equipment. Included in the degree program is the study of computer numerical control (CNC) programming and machining for milling, turning and electrical discharge machining (EDM), as well as courses in computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) utilizing current industrial CAD/CAM software. Quality control is stressed while students are taught a wide range of measuring and inspection techniques. Other topics include courses offered in welding, materials science and basic electricity. Many students enroll in these courses to upgrade existing job skills and several of our courses satisfy the continuing education unit (CEU) requirements of local apprenticeships and trade organizations. PROGRAM OUTCOMESManufacturing Technology AAS DegreeUpon successful completion of this program, students should be able to:accurately interpret technical drawings to determine product manufacturing specifications,work safely in an industrial environment around machinery, power tools and chemicals;operate manual machine tools to produce products to required specifications,operate CNC machine tools including: program try-out, tooling/work-piece setup and adjustment, communicate effectively with G&M code language to perform everyday machining operations on three-axis milling machines and two-axis lathes,utilize computer software to create CAD models and CAM generated programs for machining processes,apply technical mathematics to solve manufacturing problems including: manual machining positioning, dimensional inspection, and CNC programming,apply knowledge of materials, physics and mathematics to effectively machine industrial materials;plan manufacturing operations in a logical and efficient manner to produce products on both manual and CNC machine tools,work and communicate effectively in team environment to achieve high quality value stream, work independently to solve common problems in manufacturing processes.PROGRAM OUTCOMESManufacturing Technology Certificate DegreeUpon successful completion of this program, students should be able to:accurately interpret technical drawings to determine product manufacturing specifications,work safely in an industrial environment around machinery, power tools and chemicals;apply technical mathematics to solve manufacturing problems including: manual machining positioning and dimensional inspection,plan manufacturing operations in a logical and efficient manner to produce products on manual machine tools,work independently to solve common problems in manufacturing processes.CAREERSCareer opportunities may include machine tool operator, CNC programmer/operator and CAD/CAM technicians.SHORT TERM TRAININGFor students who need a quick-entry strategy into the work force, an individualized education and employment plan can be created that concentrates the knowledge and skills necessary to start or change a career path.
